Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance Going Standby

| | |

It has finally happened, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is going standby. Since its opening in 2019, guests have been drawn to the magic of the land of Batuu at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Starting next week, guests can experience the popular attraction, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, in a whole new way.

With “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” right around the corner, the excitement is building and the guest experience is even more important. Beginning October 1st guests will flock to Magic Kingdom and Epcot to see the new firework celebrations at both parks. Over the last few weeks the need for a virtual queue for Rise of the Resistance has dwindled as the ability to join the queue was still avalible late into the day.

For this reason, it was announced today that changes are coming to the guest experience at Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. The purpose of these changes is to give more flexibility and choices as guests navigate the theme parks at the Walt Disney World Resort.

Starting on September 23, the virtual queue will be paused for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. Guests will be able to utilize a standby queue for this one-of-a-kind attraction for the first time since it opened in 2019.

Virtual queues will continue to be used throughout the Walt Disney World Resort to maximize the guest experience during merchandise launches, grand openings, etc.

In addition, the virtual queues could potentially be used from time to time for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.
